TV Guerrilla (Showtime 2017, Idris Elba, Daniel Mays) Published 2 years ago on April 16, 2017 Guerrilla is a six part love story set against the backdrop of one of the most politically explosive times in U.K. history. It tells the story of a couple whose relationship and values are tested when they liberate a political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London. Their ultimate target becomes the Black Power Desk, a true-life, secretive counter-intelligence unit within the Special Branch dedicated to crushing all forms of black activism. While the series is set against a background of social and political activism, at its heart Guerrilla is about a relationship under pressure, and the reality that for any couple there comes a point when the choices they make have real and lasting consequences. Guerrilla stars Screen Actors Guild Award winner Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Babou Ceesay (Getting On). Additional cast includes Laurence Olivier Award winner Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful), Nathaniel Martello-White (Deadmeat), Daniel Mays (Line of Duty), Denise Gough (People, Places & Things), Brandon Scott (Grey’s Anatomy), Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat) and Nicholas Pinnock (Fortitude), along with Golden Globe winner Idris Elba (Luther, Beasts of No Nation), who also serves as an executive producer through his Green Door Pictures. Along with Ridley and Elba, the executive producers on Guerrilla are Michael J. McDonald for Stearns Castle, Patrick Spence and Katie Swinden for Fifty Fathoms and Tracy Underwood for ABC Signature. Ridley wrote the majority of the episodes and directs the first two and the finale, with Emmy Award nominee Sam Miller (Luther, Fortitude, American Crime) directing the remaining episodes. cast Babou Ceesay Bella Dayne as Eliette Brandon Scott Daniel Mays Denise Gough Freida Pinto as Jas Mitra Idris Elba Nathaniel Martello-White Nicholas Pinnock Rory Kinnear Zawe Ashton key behind the scenes crew Idris Elba as Executive Producer John Ridley as Creator/Executive Producer/Director of Pilot Katie Swinden as Executive Producer Michael McDonald as Executive Producer Patrick Spence as Executive Producer Tracy Underwood as Executive Producer show type Spy drama broadcast from Sunday 16 April 2017 at 9.00pm 1 season with 6 episodes in total network and production companies Showtime – Sky Atlantic – ABC Signature – Fifty Fathoms – Green Door Pictures – Stearns Castle Entertainment Daniel MaysEspionageIdris ElbaNicholas PinnockRory KinnearShowtimeSky Atlantic Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes9 hours ago Chronicle Mysteries: The Wrong Man (Hallmark Sun 24 Feb 2019, Alison Sweeney) Podcaster Alex McPherson seeks the truth behind the tragic death of a young lawyer, while partner Drew finds himself diving...
